  1. I saw these birds this past Friday at Raritan Bay in Middlesex, NJ, on the Jersey Shore. This is really the first time I have seen scaup, and there were a lot.. I'm trying to use head shape to understand how to ID greater vs lesser scaup. In the first pic, are the two male scaup facing left near the front greater scaup, and the bird in the back a lesser scaup?

    In the second pic, the birds in the center, the male on the right greater, the others lesser? 

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  2. I saw these birds yesterday at the Raritan Bay, on the Jersey Shore in central New Jersey. I have such a hard time with gulls.. I know there are ring-bills in here, but any help would be appreciated. I have a lot of questions, but I'll try to ask a few at a time, and maybe I will get better at identifying them myself...
